Re: [NABOKOV-L] [QUERY] Sebastian Knight
J.A. In my Library of America edition of the book, pg. 53, the title to Goodman's biography reads The Tragedy of Sebastian Knight, with the article out front, and also lists it that way on page 49 as well [Re: The book "V" is writing...is named "The Real Life of Sebastian Knight". Mr. Goodman's biography received the title "Tragedy of Sebastian Knight."]

JM: Three distinct editions of VN's novel do not carry the article and my "Library of America" edition ( 1966), from a collection of "Novels and Memoirs 1941-1951, advised and annotated by Brian Boyd, on page 4, doesn't refer to "The Tragedy". It offers only: "Tragedy of Sebastian Knight." A proliferating oversight?
